Curry hurt in GSW loss to Bucks
Curry injured; Celtics triumph
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry left with an injury and the Golden State Warriors were unable to recover in a 134-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks that snapped their eight-game winning streak Thursday night.
Eric Bledsoe scored seven straight points during Milwaukee's big third quarter and finished with 26.
Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 points, nine rebounds and four assists as the Bucks handed the Warriors their first defeat at home this season.
The two-time defending NBA champions were already missing All-Star Draymond Green and then lost Curry midway through the third. The two-time NBA MVP strained the adductor muscle in his left leg and went to the locker room shortly thereafter. He did not return.
Curry grabbed at his inner thigh after trying to contest Bledsoe's shot in transition at the 6:50 mark of the third. He is expected to have an MRI on Friday.
Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 24 points and Kevin Durant had 17 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.
Curry, limited to 51 regularseason games last season because of injuries, scored 10 points in his second straight game below 20 after getting at least 23 points in every game previously — including five 30-point performances and a 51-point outing in three quarters. He dished out six assists in 26 minutes.
Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 points and Khris Middleton had 17 and six assists as Milwaukee (9-2) won for the second straight time at Oracle Arena after a 116-107 victory on March 29. The Bucks outscored the Warriors 41-28 in the third and shot 65 percent inside the arc (43 of 66) overall.
Antetokounmpo had 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block by halftime as the Bucks led 64-51 at the break. CELTICS 116, SUN 109
In Phoenix, Kyrie Irving scored 18 of his season-high 39 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and the Boston Celtics rallied from a 22-point deficit for a 116-109 win over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night.
Irving scored Boston's first six points in the extra period, and Marcus Morris finished with 17 against his former team – including the tying 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left in regulation off a pass from Irving.
Morris hit from the top of the arc, sending the game to OT tied at 100. Jaylen Brown added 17 points, all after halftime, for the Celtics.
